Sheila Ficek

Sheila Ann Ficek, 72, of 25814 Greencastle Drive, Sun Lakes, Ariz., 85248 passed away June 7, 2014, surrounded by her husband and family.
Services will be at 10 a.m. June 19 in St. Steven’s Catholic Church, Sun Lakes, with a rosary at 9:30 a.m., followed by a luncheon. There will be no visitation.
She was born Dec. 18, 1941, in Spring Valley to Joseph and Frances Sebille (Karpinski), who preceded her in death. She lived in Spring Valley until marrying Joseph John Ficek Jr. of La Salle on Aug. 5, 1961. They made their homes in Illinois and Colorado before settling in Sun Lakes in 2002.
They raised three children, Ray (Mechelle) Ficek of Griswold, Iowa, Michelle (Kevin) Voss of Frisco, Texas and Alan Ficek of Frisco, Texas. Sheila had four grandchildren that she loved dearly, Wayde, Megan, Nicholas and Bryce.
Sheila enjoyed life by being a special part of her family’s lives, attending soccer games, school musicals and anything they were involved in. Travel was a large part of her life, whether driving somewhere, flying to a family vacation or event and cruising to foreign places. She loved it all. When she was not traveling, she spent time playing bingo, trivia, dominoes or any other activities happening at the clubhouse. She also was active in Sun Lakes Women’s Association.
The family requests that instead of flowers, donations be made in her name to one of the following programs: Hospice of the Valley, 1510 E. Flower St., Phoenix, AZ 85014-5656; Sun Lakes Sheriff Posse Medical Program, 9531 E. Riggs Road, Sun Lakes, AZ 85248; or St. Bede Academy, 24 W. U.S. 6, Peru, IL 61354.
